Policies as of April 1, 2022

We at Fermanagh Farms do our best to make your experience as a event vendor as easy, rewarding and profitable as possible.

Currently we are open to receiving vendors not on our Preferred Vendor List until the 2023 season.  For the 2024 and following seasons, we plan to finalize and basically lock down our Vendor List.  We do not currently charge a landmark fee but this may change for the 2024 season.

 

All Vendors

  • All commercial vendors must have Commerical General Liability (CGL) insurance and  provide documentation of proof to Fermanagh Farms at info@fermanaghfarms.com.  If vendor does not have insurance, they must inform us as soon as possible.


Catering and Bar

  • Order and invoice with the client dinnerware and bar glasses from the vendor of our choosing.  This includes dishes, cutlery, glasses, table linens, napkins and other catering and bar specific related items.  Fermanagh Farms will have rented for the client tent, table, chairs and other furniture items from a vendor that can provide the items and style that the client is looking for.  By ordering dinnerware rentals from the same company we minimize the number of vendors delivering and save delivery fees.  Having catering and bar order and invoice these items, it ensures the proper items in the proper quantities are ordered.
